Dee S Knight, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! We’re excited to find out more about your hero, but first, tell us Your Desire.
Awards Night in Your Desire by Dee S Knight
Genre Erotic romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Your Desire. A mysterious shop appears in town for one reason: to bring the spice of passion and the thrill of love to one special person. Magic is in more than the item purchased—it’s in the heart of the buyer, often hidden, usually surprising. And after enchantment takes hold? The store fades from sight and memory, only to reappear somewhere else. Maybe in your town….
The Artist and the Director
Derica Meadows, the conservative Director of Accounting at a large San Francisco firm, sees the most beautiful dress imaginable in a shop window. So different from her usual genderless pant suits, she’s swept into acquiring the gown for a formal business affair the next night. But a funny thing happens on the way to her party, in the form of a compelling man and a photo shoot. Suddenly, the normally logical Derica finds herself swimming in a sea of sexual freedom she’d never before considered. The hunk of a artist can satisfy her fantasies, but what will happen to her climb up the corporate ladder in the process? And to her heart?
Allison Hayes has always tried to be all things to all people. Need anything done? Call Allison. It seems no one considers that Allison might have needs, too. When she goes home one night to find a man injured in her pasture, she resigns herself to helping out yet again. However, it isn’t long before she finds the roles reversed, as the mysterious man fulfills her deepest desires. By morning, Allison knows that in being the Good Samaritan this time, she’s gotten more than she gave. The question is, was it passion for one night or for a lifetime of love?
Know the Heroine from Awards Night in Your Desire
Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.
It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?
Allison doesn’t have too much time to be bored–she works full-time as a nurse and also is one of those “go-to” people everyone seems to call on when they need a patsy…I mean good person to help out. Allison rarely says no. She gave up her dreams of traveling in order to take care of first her mother and then her father when they became ill, and now lives on her inheritance, a large farm in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia where she raises sheep. Considering that an accident from childhood left her with a nasty limp and the fact that her body wears out quickly, her normal life takes all the energy she has. Thus, no time for boredom.
What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?
Allison enjoys food but she’s one of those people who eats to live, not lives to eat. Her weight is important because of the complications with her legs, but it wouldn’t matter. Eating is not her fun thing in life. When she does have an impulse, it’s for pizza, a treat she doesn’t have often.
Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.
Usually, she’s in a nurse’s uniform. Otherwise, she likes loose-fitting clothing that’s comfortable. She raises sheep, so she’s big on wool for the winter. She loves the feel of sheepskin slippers and coats, and has some very nice wool sweaters and slacks. For the warm (dare I say hot?) Virginia summers, she likes linen or cotton slacks and short sleeved tee shirts. She rarely wears shorts due to the scars on her legs. One thing she would never have willingly worn is the formal taffeta gown she bought for her high school reunion. Not only were the colors horrid, but the stupid thing made a noise with each step she took. Finding the dress must have been fate, though, because of what else (or who else) she found beside a crashed car in her front yard later that night!
Does she know how to fix things?
Allison is fairly independent and can take care of light repairs around the house, but luckily for her, she has her uncle and cousin living on the next farm and they will usually help with anything she can’t handle.
She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
She tried to say no, that she would not help with this high school reunion. She came up with excuse after excuse but could not talk herself out of the guilt if she left her best friend high and dry without help. So, she gave in–not all that gracefully. Then she had went shopping and did another thing badly–find a dress for the costumed vintage event, something reminiscent of the 1950s. And what a horrible dress she ended up with! Truly, it was the worst possible dress to everyone except one special person. For him, it turned out to be a miracle. Or maybe a piece of magic!
How does she act around children she doesn’t know?
Allison enjoys children, though she doesn’t find herself around kids she doesn’t know all that often. When she does, she forgets that she limps until the honesty of children’s questions remind her. Still, she doesn’t mind their questions as much as their parents’ embarrassment. She would love to have her own kids someday. Living in her small town doesn’t seem to present many opportunities. Until fate drops a guy right into her pasture–after tossing him through her fence and against one of her huge oak trees!
What is she like first thing in the morning?
Truthfully, she’d always appreciate more sleep, but her work ethic doesn’t allow her to sleep beyond the alarm. By the time she’s showered and had her first dose of caffeine, she’s ready to meet the day.
Can she use chopsticks?
No. When she has Chinese food she’s firmly in the “Fork, please,” set.
Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?
Yes, and lots of it. Black, please.
What apps would she have on her phone?
Allison barely has a mobile phone, much less apps. I’m sure she wonders what an app is.
Android or iPhone?
Earrings or unpierced ears?
She doesn’t have pierced ears. When she wears earrings–which she usually does not to work–she wears something close to the ear. No chandeliers because they’re distracting. She has a few nice pairs of gemstone studs.
Tattoos or unadorned skin?
No tattoos, no piercings, no perfumes. Just skin.
Personal vehicle or public transport?
She has a car, and needs it, living on the farm. Public transportation is pretty much out of the question even when she’s in town.
Recycle or toss?
Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!
